The Radiolaria Lamp transforms a given environment through the variety of geometrical shapes that are seemingly constructed through the versatile mesh framework of fabric. The term Radioloria is generate from the concept of a fine mineral construct, a skeleton of an organism zooplankton found in the depths of the ocean.
They are commonly classified as polyhedra due to a common resemblance. The generic shape was brought into recognition by the popular colourful detail drawings illustrated by Ernst Haeckel in the book Kunstformen der Natur, (Art Forms of Nature) published in 1904.
The Radiolaria Lamp is composed with a mesh of 3-D knitted fabric that extends forth in oblong ways, as if it is has been pinch at multiple ends and stretched outwards.
The lamp was designed by Bernotat & Co Design Studio and illustrates interesting effects as the light fills and surround the overall structure. Also once the light have been turned off the lamp persists to glow-in-the-dark allowing the form of light to linger on in different intensities.
